I have made it through Alpha!! Therefore, it is time for day: 36: Focus T25: Beta CORE CARDIO!
Rather than following the schedule, I am doing my own hybrid of Body Beast and Focus T25 (starting today).
The music changes from Alpha - it’s about to get iiiiiiiiiiiintense (or weirdly 60s/70s style). Tonia is, again, the modifier so follow her for the less intense moves.
Low switch kick
Double switch kick
‘This is beta so I’m goin’ a little bit harder on you and I want you to focus just a little harder’.
22:00 minute marker
'What did you focus on in Alpha? Whenever that knee comes about the waist what do you do? You tighten the core’.
19:55 minute mark
Twisting “X” lunge
Twist “X” deep lunge
“X” lunge touch shin
“X” lunge + touch floor
Well these suck.
18:00 minute marker
Demi squat walk
Deep squat walk
15:48 minute marker - working the core
Honestly - around this point - I had to take a few breather breaks.
This is feeling like leg day to me. Love this quote:
'I’m lookin’ at you. You stay there. I know it burns and it’s about to get a little bit tougher. But this I where the focus comes in. I love what I do and I love to inspire you and I love when you feel pain because I know you’re gonna look in the mirror tomorrow and you’re gonna feel absolutely amazing.’
This is a weird one and I think I tore up the carpet in my workout room a little bit. Hardwood might be beneficial for this twisting move.
13:46 minute marker: Burnout 1
'If you’re like - Shaun I’m tired - well guess what? It’s only 25 minutes and that’s why I call it a burnout’.
11:56 minute marker
Control hop side + side
Double hop rotation
'If your inner thighs aren’t burnin’ during this abductor movement then there’s a problem goin’ on, okay?’
9:51 minute marker
I took a few breaths. I am not ashamed. Sweat was in my eyes.
6:00 minute marker
3:50 minute marker: Burnout 2
Single hop rotation
Speed kick (L)
Speed kick (R)
Then, Shaun does a little pep talk into the camera….
1:49 minute marker
1:00 minute marker
'There’s a difference between a sprint and a body sprint. In a body sprint I’m askin’ you to move the arms and the legs forward and back’.
THEN…. this happens. :)
Cool down/Active stretching (2:30 minutes)
This should look familiar - it’s the same as in Alpha. I was so sweaty some of the moves (prayer) were hard to hold. Ew gross.
Things are orange rather than yellow - that’s worth mentioning. Orange means you’re MOVING ON BABY!
My legs were burning. Holy moly. I was sweating all over the place. By the time I took my HR monitor off, I burnt around 400 calories.
I think I am going to hear 'BURPEE’ in my sleep.
Scott (Shaun’s hubby) is in this video as well (I am thinking he will be in all of them) and is super neon-cute as always. I think I have a crush on their love story.
Afterwards, I went upstairs and my daughter said, 'ma, bath’. I laughed and went to shower.
This is a fantastic cardio workout. It is one of those that makes me contemplate cutting off ALL OF MY HAIR because it gets so sweaty it slaps me in the face during the workout.
